On part two of The Real Housewives of New York City reunion last night, we were treated to something we haven't actually experienced in awhile:
A heavy dose of unabashed, unfiltered Bethenny.
Picking up where part one left off last week, The Real Housewives of New York City Season 7 Episode 21 saw Frankel uncut in all her glory.
Incredibly, she may be the most sane cast member this season, not just telling it like it is but actually helping the tension simmer down a bit.
With the LuAnn and Carole feud going strong, Bethenny calmed everyone down by recalling how "cool" everyone was earlier in the season.
LuAnn responded that they were cool, sure, but wanted to Bethenny down. And from that point on ... at least Carole got a bit of a reprieve?
Bethenny also came to the defense of Dorinda, saying she can be sensitive and lash out at inopportune moments. Aren't they all, though?
She then criticized the women (half-seriously) for insulting one another when they can't even get the details of their beef straight.
"What, we're just making s—t up now? Well then Tom Cruise walked in and I just banged him!" Frankel said, as only she can.
Bethenny followed that up with some jokes about Carole's sex dream, saying, "I mean, she went down on me, but other than that."
Moving on to the "New Ramona," she admitted she got a boob job, and that she got too testy with Andy Cohen at last year's reunion.
When Mario Singer was cheating with Kasey Dexter and Andy asked about it, Ramona incredulously shut down the questioning.
This year, she was willing to discuss it. "It was out of a horror picture," she said of catching him cheating on her. "I was in shock."
"It's the worst feeling in the world to have someone betray you that way. I know the issue wasn't about the affair," Ramona said.
"It's bigger than that. It's about him now feeling good about himself. It's difficult for a man to live in the shadow of a woman."
She acknowledged that Mario blamed the show for their divorce, while Bethenny, again, told her she needs to step up as well.
"You have to really own it instead of trying to put a little bow on it," Frankel told her co-star. "You like the heat off of you."
She recalled Ramona's false apologies or just brushing things off, and then they argued over whether Singer stole her dresses.
Then things got ugly, with Bethenny herself accused of cheating and Ramona on the defensive over her many apparent issues.
